“We shall sodomize your sons” The homosexual agenda in America

I first heard Michael Swift's Gay Manifesto when it was read as a part of a school wide lecture hour at my college. Since then, I've been interested in paying closer attention to the LGBT community. I would like to briefly share my reflections on Swift's article, and what's more, the homosexual agenda in the United… Continue reading “We shall sodomize your sons” The homosexual agenda in America

The Good News We’re Missing

A gospel focused on personal salvation is partial at best. I believe that presenting a gospel focused solely on personal salvation is harmful to God’s purposes, because it produces Christians who are satisfied with far less than God’s ultimate plan. His ultimate plan is that mankind would come to know and declare to all creatures… Continue reading The Good News We’re Missing

Misusing Our Faith

We're all tempted to interpret biblical text in a way that fits our mindset because everyone inevitably has presuppositions on any given subject.

Accomplishment is defined by running and spinning, searching and grasping,… Continue reading A Lifetime of Waiting

The Need For Collaborative Ministry

The most important and distinctive characteristic of genuinely Christian ministry is love. One aspect of loving servanthood is collaboration. The mission of the Church is not the business of the elders alone. It is a co‐operative venture requiring collaboration between all the saints and elders. I believe the necessity and call for collaborative ministry, particularly… Continue reading The Need For Collaborative Ministry

You’re Practically A Prophet

A large portion of the prophetic books are littered with parallelisms that function to increase the impact of what is communicated through repetition that allows time for  meaning to sink into the reader’s understanding. Recently, I was studying in the Book of Amos and recognized an emblematic parallelism, which is the partnering of a figurative… Continue reading You’re Practically A Prophet
